BetterTouchTool - Window Snapping





I have been using BetterTouchTool for about a year now and it has increasingly improved my productivity with my Magic Trackpad. I am at the point now where I rarely if ever use my mouse any longer. I think over the next few weeks I am going to post a few short videos like the one above showing off some of the features of BTT and some of the tricks I use myself, as well as some useful presets that I have found online. Earlier today I posted this BetterTouchTool tip for using BTT with Final Cut Pro X.

In the video above I am showing off window snapping via BetterTouchTool. Windows snapping is something I first used with Windows 7, but with BTT you can bring that functionality to OS X. I find window snapping extremely useful on my iMac, the 27" screen offers enough real estate to where I can arrange several apps on a single desktop and work fluidly.

BetterTouchTool offers so much more than just window snapping as its main purpose is for touch gestures with a trackpad, and over the next few weeks I am going to try to touch on as many aspect of this great tool as I can. If you have not heard of BetterTouchTool then you should go download it now!

Also in the video above I mentioned the BTT Remote App for iOS, if you want to support the developer then you can purchase the iOS App in the App Store for only a $1.99:

BTT Remote for iPad

I plan on purchasing this and doing a video review of it very soon. Stay tuned!
